Still wearing that fine corduroy culvert suit, but I noticed the exit is 267 off of I-90 (westbound) rather than 266. Also, if you arrive hungry, you'll have to move on down the road, because there truly is "no dine" in Nodine.

The builder of Culvert Man lives in the house next door. We stopped by to admire his handiwork a couple of years ago, and he came out to stand by his man.

It appears that Culvert Man has had some minor cosmetic surgery and is looking better than ever.
